Summary 0002683: Add Refine shape feature to PartDesign
Revision 2018-01-14 23:04 by normandc
Description In PartDesign Next, creating a Refine shape feature from the OpenSCAD workbench on a PartDesign feature used to be possible. Now, two things happen:

  1. The OpenSCAD Refine Shape feature breaks the chain of features, and is created outside of the active Body.
  2. The created feature fails with a "Links go out of the allowed scope" error.

While the Body itself can be selected for the Refine shape feature, refining a PartDesign feature under a Body may be necessary for some ulterior operations such as fillets or chamfers.

This feature request asks for a new dedicated PartDesign tool, but would it be possible to make the OpenSCAD feature compatible instead? For example, the Sheet Metal workbench add-on was made to be compatible with Bodies.

Description In PartDesign Next, creating a Refine shape feature from the OpenSCAD workbench on a PartDesign feature breaks the chain of features, as the Refine shape feature is saved outside of the active Body.

Considering that refining a PartDesign object may be necessary for some ulterior operations such as fillets or chamfers, I'd say it would be essential to add a PartDesign Refine shape feature.
